Thanks to this exclusive from Indiewire commenting on the precarious state indie films are left when their distributor goes bankrupt, for bringing to attention that one such film, Gun Hill Road, written and directed by Rashaad Ernesto Green has managed to overcome this unforeseen temporary roadblock and is now available on Netflix. Co-starring Esai Morales and Judy Reyes, Gun Hill Road is a fierce and sensitive NYC coming of age trans drama buoyed by its break out star Harmony Santana. The authentic and fresh way the film deals with an identity crux of a gender variant teen clashing with the father’s traditional Latino masculinity (machismo) is a triumph for the rarely represented Latino LGBT voice. Put it on the top of you instant queue ahorita!
p.s. regarding the Indiewire piece, word on the street is that Filly Brown which was recently dumped by Indomina Releasing has been picked up by Lionsgate, but this girl has been unable to confirm.
